Re: Shingles

Yes , shingles are contagious... If you have them your doctor will treat you with medication, like Valtrex until the Ob is gone, sometimes a antibotic if it is serve... but during that time you can be contagious, normally people who have had chickenpox when they were children do not run the risk of catching it, as those adults who haven't but there is always a chance. If you are concerned talk to your health care provider.
